SEATIDE held its 3rd Work Package Leaders’ Meeting in Brussels on 17 February 2016, the day before the project’s 2nd Policy Forum at the European External Action Service. The project’s coordinator Yves Goudineau, scientific coordinator Andrew Hardy and project manager Elisabeth Lacroix got together with Work Package leaders Silvia Vignato (WP3), Tim Harper (WP4), Muhadi Sugiono (WP5) and Chayan Vaddhanaphuti (WP6), as well as Pietro Masina.
The main item for the day’s discussion was the first draft of the final report, circulated by Andrew Hardy in advance of the meeting. The discussion ranged over the different sites, types and processes of integration in Southeast Asia presented in the draft, and drew up a list of thematic conclusions and recommendations for inclusion in the second draft.
Elisabeth Lacroix took the opportunity to remind participants of the outstanding deliverables – policy briefs and thematic reports, mainly – that must submitted to the European Commission before the project closes at the end of March 2016.
